In 1970, Grover described a novel disease characterized by the sudden onset of intense pruritus and disseminated papules on the trunk. It has a typical histological picture, manifests predominantly in white men older than 40, and is frequently self-limited. However, in some patients the disease persists for several months or years, and therefore the original name, transient acantholytic dermatosis, has been abandoned in favor of Grover disease.1
